To help reduce these stressors and prepare mentally as we return to learning, families can:
Help students identify a supportive individual such as a parent or caregiver, family member, or friend that they can talk to, whether it be in-person, over the phone, or virtually
Engage in stress management techniques such as mindful breathing and exercise
Practice reframing negative thoughts
Always practice kindness and compassion for yourself and others
Establish a healthy self-care routine
- Set alarms 30 minutes earlier than scheduled - Mornings can be stressful and hectic. Make sure to build in time for your child to gently wake up and begin their day without the rush.
- Lay out clothes, pack lunches, and create a task list the night before - Doing this ensures there is one less step in your morning routine, helping you start your day on the right foot.
- Put electronics away each morning to reduce distractions - Sticking to a schedule and eliminating interruptions keeps everyone on-track.
